Degree: Liberal Arts and Sciences, General Studies and Humanities, Other
Graduation Year: 2012

Ashford online was very intense but well worth the structure. The coursework is very manageable with time management. I was impressed how I was able to learn so much in a short length of time (6 weeks per class). The online experience worked out very well. I can easily access my class through a computer and what I found very beneficial was the digital text books, which were easily obtainable on my phone. After I obtained my MPA I received a $20,000 increase.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I think that Ashford is a wonderful educational institution. I was hesitate about going back to school and doing it online, but it was just what I needed. The instructors were remarkable, engaging and helped me out tremendously when I was going through some tough moments. I have gained so much knowledge and skill and see it in my everyday life, while interviewing, speaking about research with others and helping others with their papers. Kudos to my Alma Mater.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I attended Ashford University from 2012 Until I graduated with my bachelor's degree in November 2015. Ashford has accelerated courses that are fast pace and require hard work. However, if a student is willing to work hard they will do well and get a quality education. I do feel there are some professors that are a little unfair in their grading; almost seeming to dock my grade so they felt like they were doing their job whilst offering little or no reason for the lowered grade. With that said I believe that most of the professors that I had were fair in their grading and I graduated with a 3.95 GPA overall and a 3.97 in my major which is psychology. I do plan to attend the Master's of Arts in Psychology at Ashford as well. One last thing, Ashford is very military friendly so if you are in the military and looking to go back to school or transfer to another school I highly recommend Ashford University.

First off this is not a bad school and it is accredited. I have had such a wonderful experience at the school. I just graduate with my bachelors in healthcare administration and I am pleased say that I graduated with a 3.68. School is what you make it. And if I every had needed anything I was always taken care of. So yes I would recommend this school to anyone. I am for anyone who didn't know they have a beautiful campus.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2020

I went to Ashford from 2012-2014. I had to take a break do to life, (3 kids and moving). I would say 90 percent of the professors I had where professional and understanding. The cost is a bit high. I am still paying for my last class I had to withdraw from due to a broke computer from a kid. I can't remember my GPA it was above 3.5, I had a 4.0 before we moved. These class are shorter, but require as much time if not more then a traditional class room, which can be a challenge. I plan o n returning to Ashford to finish my degree. I always to a week break between classes to clear my head. You can take up to 2 weeks without dis-enrolling.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2013

Stay away from "For Profit" institutions such as Ashford. Unless you are already in a job, a degree from Ashford will not open any/many doors, it will saddle you with debt. There are better non-profit schools available at a cheaper rate, better credentials and student support. Way too many negatives to list, but just a word of caution, go elsewhere for your education, you waste your money, time, effort and your future potential at this institution. No benefits whatsoever with a degree from, "For Profit", Ashford.

Ashford is a good online school. You can get your degree without leaving your full time job.

Degree: Applied Behavior Analysis
Graduation Year: 2017

I have been attending Ashford for two years. From the moment I spoke with Megan, who was basically my recruiter, I knew Ashford was for me. I am an over thinker. Every decision has to be planned and thought about. I was researching and speaking with 3 other online schools. Ashford blew them all out of the water. The tuition is a bit high. There have been 2 cost increases, but that is life. You get annual raises at your job right... how do you think the extra funds get to you? The teachers have all been great. My adviser and the financial aide department have helped me numerous times. There was a mix up with paper work and instead of sending me a bill for a semester my financial aid specialist called me to tell me which form I had not returned. The classes are challenging. I am a mom of three busy kids and i work full time. I have a 3.96 GPA which I am very proud of. This school is fantastic. Hard work and effort are required. If you are lazy or do not like to write well thought out and researched papers you should not attend any college. Ashford is a great choice for someone who wants to succeed because every staff member at Ashford is there for your success!

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2014

I completed my BA in Child Development in 2014. With my degree, I have a much better job in my school district. I am now currently enrolled in the Masters program. I will be done with my Master degree in April 2015! Ashford is an awesome college with great teachers! One of the best decisions I have made.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

This is the worst educational system I have ever dealt with. Constantly being transferred over and over. Wasn't able to really speak because every time I did she would interrupt me and/or talk over me. Telling me I was not told something because they don't tell students this or that. For this place it only comes down to money they don't care who is successful and graduates. This is probably why they have a 39.9% graduation rate. They are extremely unprofessional rude. No organization at all. Stay away from this place and go to a real university, be sure to do your research. I would put no stars but that isn't an option.
